Carol received rave revues in Los Angeles productions of "Do I Hear A Waltz?," "Follies," and "Amy's View," for which she received The Los Angeles Drama Critics Award. She also broke box-office records for her stellar performance in the title role of "Mame". Carol headlined both the Fabulous Palm Springs Follies and the newly created Florida Follies.
As a regular on ABC's General Hospital (1963), she played loving Italian matriarch "Angela Eckart", and on Touched by an Angel (1994) she gave a heartwarming portrayal of a woman facing death. Carol has also played leading roles on such shows as The Commish (1991) and a dramatic diva on Murder, She Wrote (1984). Other TV appearances include musical variety shows, guest roles on Sex and the City (1998), Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (1993), Murder One (1995), Matt Houston (1982), Hotel (1983), The Love Boat (1977) and Simon & Simon (1981). She appeared as a recurring character on Flipper (1995), shot in Australia. For three years Carol hosted her own biweekly TV magazine/talk show, "The Carol Lawrence Show", which she wrote and produced for the Trinity Broadcasting Network. The show's theme song, "In His Spotlight", set the stage for spotlighting celebrities, cooking, nutrition, fashion, exercise, children, music and other topics.
By hosting five shows on the popular series "Chef du Jour" for the Food Network, Carol was able to share the secret recipes for her cookbook, "I Remember Pasta", a Harvest House publication. In 1998 she set a new record for cookbook sales on the Home Shopping Network. Hand in hand with her cookbook is her interest in fitness, nutrition, health and exercise. Her aerobic/ dancercise video, "Broadway Body Workout" is set to Broadway music and reflects her love of dance and fitness. Her autobiography, "Carol Lawrence, The Backstage Story", was released by McGraw-Hill.
She has performed with all the major symphonies throughout the United States and Canada, and also spanned the globe entertaining on all the major cruise lines. Her concert act, a multimedia biographical show backed by a 12-piece orchestra, continues to dazzle crowds everywhere.
Carol has received both Tony and Grammy Award nominations, as well as numerous humanitarian awards including City of Hope's "Woman of the Year" and "The Spirit of Life Award". Her award-winning television commercials for General Foods' International Coffees are classic examples that the name Carol Lawrence is synonymous with good taste.
